Malakin's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
Malakin (470) - Victoria, British Columbia, - APR 15, 2008
Hazy brown with a frothy beige head. Really nice aroma, but the flavour was a bit of a letdown.

Ysok02 (1827) - Mons, BELGIUM - OCT 21, 2017
Robe brune, reflets ambrés, mousse moyennement persistante. Nez discret sur un pointe de chocolat, d'épices et de café. Bouche acidulée, sur la café amer, fine bulle, longueur moyenne et finale abrupte. Une brune assez simple.

I wasn't too impressed by this Dubbel. It's not very outspoken, not much special.

Bottle from The Bottle Shop, Brugge. Amber-brown, little head, and some sediment. Has a strength to it, some sugary-bready pale malts behind this with a drab but palatable sweetness. Some fruit is evident in its nose.

JK54B (1602) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2017
Malty and syropy nose. Pale beige large head. Clear brown color. Malty roasty taste with some syrup and hops.

Zilverenmaan (274) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 26, 2016
Redbrown ale with big but shortlived head. Taste of caramel, coffee, yeast and something fresh ( spices or hops? ) No bitterness though. Slightly oily with lively carbonation. It’s a nice and even complex brew albeit rather watery.

Botella 33 cl tomada en junio 2010 en el Lupulo. (r271). Fcpref 22..07..2011. Lote A022. Sabores maltosos algo dulces. Cuerpo medio con 6.5 vol. No está mal.

zacgillbanks (5506) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2016
6.5% ABV bottle from Beer Museum, Brugge, Belgium. Hazy copper coloured with a red fruity and cola flavour followed by a sugary sweet toffee and cherry finish. The flavour is a little ‘fake’.

Slap, waterig vlak bier. Niets spannends aan, geen karakter, niets. Ik kan deze niet aanraden.

R2k2 (461) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2015
A somewhat cloudy, but good looking brown beer with a firm, slightly brown layer of foam. Besides the scent of alcohol, the aroma also contains the hint of grain and/or fresh bread. In it’s slightly sweet taste is also the hint of licorice. It leaves a dry palate, and the aftertaste is a combination of metal and bitterness. Een iets troebel, doch mooi bruin bier met een stevige, lichtbruine kraag. Naast de hint van alcohol zit in het aroma eveneens de toets van graan en/of vers brood. In de lichtzoet smaak zit een tint van drop. De afdronk is droog, en in de nasmaak de combinatie van metaal en bitterheid.

Bornyensis (321) - BELGIUM - DEC 5, 2015
Nogal een donkere bruine kleur, zachte bittere smaak, voldoende schuimkraag.
